Apple has launched the all-new 11-inch and 12.9 inch iPad Pro at an event held in New York. The new iPads come with an all-screen design with Liquid Retina True Tone display that has a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The iPad Pro comes with an integrated Face ID, which replaces the home button and Touch ID.
The new iPads come powered by the new A12X Bionic 7nm chip that features the next-generation Neural Engine, seven-core and Apple-designed GPU. Moreso, the new iPads can magnetically incorporate the second-generation Apple Pencil that also charges wirelessly at the same time.
Apple has gone with the USB-C connector by replacing the Lightning connect that offers power for charging along with support USB 3.1 Gen 2 for high-bandwidth data transfers up to twice the speed to and from cameras and musical instruments, drives external displays up to 5K and the iPad Pro USB-C can be used to charge an iPhone as well. The new iPads come with a promise of up to 10 hours of battery life.
